Your modern home relies extensively on the speed and stability of the data network. Smart technologies, IoT products, and mobile devices communicate with each other and source content from the internet. Unfortunately, while wireless is the most convenient method of connecting, it is often the most unreliable. That is until now.
The newest wireless format, Wi-Fi 6 (officially, IEEE 802.11ax), advances home networking by remarkably improving performance for the average users and high-demand homes alike. The standard and supporting devices are designed around efficiency, high-definition entertainment, and remote office conferencing.
Are you curious how Wi-Fi 6 makes your Palm Desert, CA, connections faster, safer, and more robust? Continue reading below to learn more.
A luxury smart home has approximately 20-25 Wi-Fi devices connected at any time. This high density of units negatively impacts bandwidth performance, especially when streaming online games and 4K videos. However, Wi-Fi 6 includes features that allow every device to increase data rates, accommodating four times the connections and prioritizing high-bandwidth content.
Wi-Fi 6 opens less populated frequencies, offering a clean and clear alternative connection scheme. Standard 5 and 2.4GHz transceivers have far fewer non-overlapping channels, often the source of data congestion and connection conflicts.
Legacy RF (Radio Frequency) networks become overwhelmed by the constant demands of devices attempting to connect to a network system. To handle the onslaught of requests made by in-house and external requests, Wi-Fi 6 automatically differentiates between approved and foreign units.
The new routers utilize spectrum time-frequency segregation management to divvy out microsecond time slices, assuring each has a connection schedule. In addition, the system “colors” the units tied to your network, ignoring nonmembers, thereby freeing up time and increasing bandwidth for you. The improved efficiency reduces latency, ends video buffering of streaming content and work video calls, and ensures instant access to surveillance cameras.
Smart and IoT devices, such as sensors, cameras, and your mobile phone, rely on batteries to simplify installation and save money. However, these items constantly communicate status, an act that can drain the charge reasonably quickly.
Wi-Fi 6 coordinates when a device sleeps or turns on its radio. The result is your smartphone getting more life out of each charge, and doorbell cameras run longer between battery changes.
Security for wireless products is a paramount concern; their susceptibility can put your privacy at risk. Wi-Fi signals contain incredibly personal information where less than well-intentioned individuals are waiting to intercept it.
The new platform introduces WPA3 as the standard security protocol, making your home network exponentially safer. In addition, the protocol enables boosted cryptographic tools that furnish enterprise-class level protection.
A reliable and secure home network comes only from qualified and expert installation. Whether you are connecting a few devices or a hundred, you want to be guaranteed instant access.
